It's not like I'm completely unfamiliar with web development. I've done legacy ASP (which sucked big hairy donkey balls compared to), ASP.Net (which sucked big hairy donkey balls compared to) MVC3, MVC4, MVC5, with some PHP, and even a straight-up jquery app. Just because I despise the stateless nature of the web and the typeless nature of the devil spawn we know as jquery (and all its dozens of equally evil "frameworks"), doesn't mean I can't do the work, or that I don't recognize the practicality of web development for zero-cost app deployment. Might I remind you that I don't like Qlikview either, but I still do it (admittedly with a copious amount of verbal gnashing of teeth).

Furthermore, given my somewhat comparative lack of familiarity with the stack means I'm not going to come in and just take over and impose my own warped sensibilities on the team. It'll probably take me a week or two of browsing the code before I make any suggestions or code changes. I'll also rely heavily on the current team members regarding the "lay of the land" in the code, infrastructure, and processes.

As a reminder, I wrote this article (way back in 2008). I think the advice is applicable to team leads as well as "just programmers".
